Annette conducted her PhD at Queen Mary University of London. Her doctoral project looked at language variation in Beijing Mandarin among local-born young adults and the relationship between language use and social meanings related to gender, class, career choices and future aspiration. She has also worked on language attitudes towards different varieties of Mandarin Chinese. Annette is a Research Associate on Strand 2 of the MEITS project, and she investigates the use of standard and vernacular varieties in China, focusing on expression of cultural, political and ideological identities in the increasingly multilingual Chinese society.
